Chandigarh: Two college students from Haryana were shot dead by unidentified assailants at their rented accommodation in Sector 15 area here, police said on Thursday.

The victims, both in their early twenties, have been identified as Ajay, a student of a private university, and Vineet, who was attending a government college here, Superintendent of Police (Central) Ram Gopal said.

The incident took place late Wednesday night when the victims were with their friend Mohit on the second floor of the building, Gopal said.

The victims were taken to PGIMER where they died, Gopal said.

Mohit, who managed to escape unhurt, was being quizzed by the police.

The police officer said a case has been registered and further investigation is on. CCTV footage was also being scanned, he said.

Notably, the area where the incident took place lies close to Panjab University and has a sizeable number of college students living on rent.
